What kinds of Indiana life insurance are available?
The most common types of life insurance are term and whole, also known as permanent.
Term life insurance is the most common type of life insurance. It provides coverage for a specific period of time, or term. Terms may last anywhere from 1 to 30 years and must be renewed. Term life insurance is best choice for covering debts that will be alleviated in time such as a mortgage or college tuition.
It is important to note that an Indiana term life policy does not build cash value and will only pay a death benefit if you die during the policy's term.
Whole life insurance is meant to be kept throughout your life. This means as long as you continue to pay the premiums, a death benefit will be given. Generally, Indiana whole life insurance builds cash value and may be borrowed against. However, if you do not pay back what you have borrowed, your beneficiaries will receive a reduced death benefit.
It is important to note that there are different kinds of whole life insurance; therefore you will want to go over your options with your Indiana life insurance agent before you purchase your policy.
